's re-election, will use the last few days to bolter mr. obama looks to be on track. but i want to know what you think about the factor's election coverage analysis. we are asking in a new billoreilly.com poll. do you believe the factor has been fair covering the election? do you believe the factor has been fair covering the election? yes or no. and we will give you the results on monday. that's a memo. now the top story tonight, let's bring in the aforementioned economic guru, lou docks. and you say? >> i say unemployment right now is higher than when president obama took office in 2009. and that's not good enough to be of any significant, in my opinion, any significant help to gov. romney. and that is 23 million people without work, who are working without, you know, a full-time job who want them or have given up work being all together. >> so you, lou dobbs, take the exact opposite stance that cbs news radio takes? exactly the opposite? >> imagine that. >> but look, come on now, cbs radio goes out to thousands of radio stations, people like me listen to it in their car or when you ge
carl rove. mr. rove, new "new york times" poll out today shows president obama doing very well in florida, ohio, virginia. dick morris going to have thoughts on that later. but, do you take that poll seriously? >> no, i don't take those three polls seriously. here is why. in florida, they have obama ahead by 1 point. they have seven points more democrats than republicans. even in 2008 there were only 3 points more democrats than republicans. similarly ohio 5 point margin for obama. 8 point advantage for the democrats. 8 points in 2008. does anybody think ohio is going to be as democrat as it was in 2008. 2 points for obama. 8 point democrat in 2008. six points democrat. does anybody think it's going to be as good as it was in 2008. at mildly that's called absurd. >> bill: let me run it down for the folks. all the polls say, all of them say that prib voters are more motivated this time around. so when when mr. rove says do you think it's going to be the same democratic turnout in ohio as it was in 2008. the answer based on the data is no. because republicans are more motivated t

of the presidential campaign. mr. obama canceled campaigning in florida, wisconsin and flew back to washington to help coordinate the federal hurricane response. mitt romney canceled events in wisconsin and florida. neither campaign wants to appear insensitive with so many americans in harm's way. but the weather delay won't help romney. >> if it benefits anybody, it probably benefits the president because he gets to look presidential because he is the president. he's in charge of the government and in charge of that response. >> romney's campaign is thinking of sending him to new jersey later this week where he could meet with storm victims a with governor chris christie, a romney ally. president obama may sit wisconsin tomorrow. of course, we invite you to stay with nbc bay area news for continuing coverage of the storm sandy. you can always go to nbcbayarea.com for the latest updates. >>> still ahead here at 6:00, the new invention that could prevent some surprising injuries in hospitals. >>> also -- >> i'm scott budman. a new smartphone and new smartphone apps. coming up, the windows version of th

heard is the reference to the president's rhetoric on the trail yesterday. mr. obama was talking about g.o.p. policies on the trail and the crowd began to boo. and he said, don't boo, vote, voting is the best revenge. and romney, as you heard there a moment ago picked up on it saying, the president has now reduced his campaign to small things and attacks, whereas what romney argues notwithstanding his own attacks of president obama, is that he's offering hope and change. borrowed rhetoric from the 2008 obama campaign itself perhaps, but none of less, in that completion of his rhetoric about obama and revenge, he says, what he hopes people do is vote for their love of country. all about a positive close, notwithstanding again, the criticisms implicit and explicit throughout the stump speech in what is now 82 hours before the first polls close on the east coast tuesday night. we'll send it back to you in new york. >> brian: carl, i know you've got a sense of people on the ground that mccain wouldn't have a shot in ohio, wouldn't have pennsylvania, and a place like new hampshire, is there a
crisis. and mr. obama heads to the all important state of ohio later today. and for his part, mitt romney was in virginia at several campaign stops. he criticized the president for not doing enough to help businesses. also romney said the nation needs a president who understands business better. romney's aides are conceding that the storm's slowed some of his momentum, but they insist their internal polls show him ahead in some of those toss-up states. romney visits wisconsin and also ohio today. >>> and from the lighter side of politics, vice president biden went on david letterman's show last night to read his top ten list. >> ah, joe. the subject, the top ten reasons to vote early. here's some of the highlights. >> if you vote early, you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry. i'm being told that's not accurate. >> that's not accurate. number two. >> early voters receive a $5 million donation from donald trump. >> wow! and the number one good thing about voting early, ladies and gentlemen -- >> honestly, don't you want this election over with already? >> yes, we do! >> i think we all do, j
a remarkable, remarkable day. a remarkable decision. i mean, president obama is expected to restart his campaign schedule tomorrow. but mr. romney did not want to wait for that. he started his campaign events today. i'm sorry, are you stuck doing something else? i'll take advantage of that? i'll get back on the campaign trail, i'm heading to florida. apparently you're otherwise occupied. well, i'm not. it's remarkable. it is a remarkable decision to restart his campaign today. but honestly, it is also remarkable that mr. romney never really stopped campaigning in the first place. we reported yesterday on this event that mr. romney held in dayton, ohio, yesterday afternoon. it was the event that had previously been billed as a victory rally in dayton. with the president off the campaign trail entirely to deal with the crisis, the romney campaign realized it would be coarse to keep campaigning. the campaign's communications director put out a statement on monday saying that the romney campaign was going to be canceling all campaign events, "out of sensitivity to the millions of americans
a version of chinese state-directed capitalism by the way of stimulus. mr. obama might squeak by. he has in addition to incumbency and a vestige of likability, a candidate who found his stride late in the campaign. but a second term will mean four years of spent ideas packaged in shopworn rhetoric to be shoved down the throat by a president who has nothing politically to lose. i'm not sure that's fair. would you agree with that? i don't think so. >> i would agree that the president's exhausted intellectually when it comes to what he plans to do for the next our years. i think there's a big question mark, though, also over what mitt romney would do over the next four years. only thing we know for sure is mitt romney's saying he's going to cut taxes and barack obama says he's going to raise taxes and neither one of these -- >> that's the argument in the messaging out on the campaign trail. but when you look at what this president has done -- >> no, no, no, no -- just stop. >> what? >> just stop. i'm talking about the future. you want to talk about the past. if i say the president's intelle
for welfare, even though president obama did no such thing? well, now mr. romney is back with a new ad in ohio with that same old lie about welfare. they brought it back for the end of the campaign. romney campaign sent senator norm coleman from minnesota to ohio to tell voters there that mitt romney had no intention of overturning roe versus wade even though mitt romney himself says he would do everything he could to overturn roe versus wade. he said if that happened be he would be delighted to sign a bill banning all abortion at the federal level. last week in ohio mr. romney made a mistake, an out and out gaffe. >> i saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep, now owned by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. >> not true. totally false. jeep is not doing that. the day mitt romney told that made-up horror story to ohio voters chrysler had already announced that actually they were expanding. in ohio and in michigan. they weren't pulling out. mitt romney responded to the instant fact checking not by taking it back but by turning that lie i
on the storm. at the midday briefing, mr. obama insisted the campaign was not on his mind. >> i'm worried about the impact on families, and i'm worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. >> meanwhile, for much of monday mitt romney tried to walk a fine line, balancing campaigning in ohio and iowa with compassion for storm victims. in ohio he appealed for americans to put politics aside. >> we can mace these kind of challenges before, and as we have, it's interesting to see how americans come together, and this looks like another time when we need to come together all across the country even here in ohio. >> reporter: still, romney did not entirely abandon politics. >> the people of the entire nation are counting on ohio because my guess is -- my guess is that if ohio votes me in as president, i'll be the next president of the united states. >> reporter: both candidates have canceled all of their own public events for today. the president was supposed to be in colorado and w
barack obama is today. >> bill: mr. pelley low goes in your recent polling we remind everybody you pulled out of west virginia north carolina and virginia. romney is going to take those states. you suspended polling there do you believe that tonight. >> it was based on the head-to-head number. barack obama was leading 48% to 40% in those three states. six weeks ago. then 4 will% 44. now it's 48%, 48%. common denominator barack obama is still stuck at 48%. so, if, in virginia, especially or in bell test get up to where it is is in new hampshire and ohio to 49%, we would certainly take another look and jump back. in it's still stuck at 4%. as incumbent as the known quantity, very difficult to get to 50. when you can't seem to grow beyond that. >> still standing to analysis. in ohio, rasmussen today, has romney up by two. >> i can tell you, we pulled ohio last week. and i looked at the two polls that had obama plus 4. i don't think obama plus four is the right number in ohio and here is why. >> bill: what was your number by the way? >> we had it tied. 47, 47. suffolk listed all the candidate
said. >>> before sandy, romney was on a roll topping president obama in poll after poll. but in the wake of the devastating superstorm, did sandy stall romney's momentum? here now are keith boykins and robert costa, jonathan colegio. mr. costa, i go to you on the conservative side. i think that barack obama did himself a lot of good. >> barack obama has had a decent week because he's been presidential in handling of this crisis in new jersey and new york. but ha we still see from the romney campaign is he's competitive in pennsylvania. he's competitive in ohio. he's trying harder. did it shake up the narrative, sure, but it's a very close race. >> my pal keith boykins on the other side of the coin. it looks to me like romney has gone behind enemy lines. he's parachuting behind enemy lines in pennsylvania and in michigan and in wisconsin and in iowa. he could be in trouble, keith. >> pennsylvania hasn't voted for a republican since 1988, i think. i mean, these are states that barack obama has never trailed in. it shows just how desperate mitt romney is because he can't co
president obama in the lead, 56 to 46%. here's one of mr. romney's biggest supporters. >> i feel pressure in that way. if we don't win ohio, it's tough to think we'll win the national debate. >> henry, let's talk about the ground game in ohio. who has the advantage? >> it's tough to say at this point. the obama campaign never left after 2008. they like to tell us that. they like to remind us of that. the romney campaign has been on the ground since the primary was over probably in april. they had a lot of catching up to do. they are stressing their door knocking capabilities. they've knocked on over a million doors in ohio. it's tough to say. the obama campaign has a superior ground game. they were heavily involved in a ballot issue a year ago. that was seen as a scrimmage for 2012. and right now we're just waiting to see who's turning out the early vote fast enough. >> but it seems like president obama has the sense there, that's what experts say. we just talked to michael mcdonald. it seems that way. do you think it's the thing that has enough with the wind at its back to carry him? >>
political and get it on before the election to make president obama look presidential or help out victims? >> steve: they are trying to squeeze things in. bon jovi and bruce springsteen support barack obama and in fact mr. springsteen traveled with the president of the united states. where are the conservative performers? there are not any on the line up. when nbc did the event for katrina, do you remember kan ye west where he said george bush doesn't care about black people? how is nbc -- that is the picture right there. how isng to control it? rickk rickk i am sorry, gretchen last one for hurricane katrina was 10 days after. at leastt. maybe 9/11 and 10 days after and let the city get its feet under itself before they went to this is a rushed job because the election is three days after. >> steve: is it a hurricane benefit or a concert for obama? >> gretchen: headlines this morning. he may be on obama's job council but supporting romney. paul otillini. he critized the president for not doing more to create jobs and a stimulus plan. the president's job's council hasn't met since january.
. for more on that, we turn to mr. ron claiborne. >> good morning, everyone. in the news, the superstorm is threatening to alter campaign plans for president obama and mitt romney, as they come down the final stretch. romney and vice president biden have canceled weekend rallies in virginia. >>> and the businessman who sued mark zuckerberg, for half of the company. he said he fabricated and destroyed evidence to support his claims. >>> and lance armstrong will not be awarded the award for -- he will not be awarded to any other riders. the governing body will remain blank for all of the years that armstrong had one. the committee said that armstrong should return his prize money. >>> finally, an unexpected guest at a wendy's in kentucky. a deer came through the door, shattering the glass. the deer ran around the restaurant before leaving through a window. there were no other customers inside at the time. >>> it's time, now, for the weather and back to ginger zee. ginger? >> even though the eastern third of the nation is consumed with sandy talk, there's a lot going on. we have to get to t
because he thinks president obama is the best person of the job. i don't think general powell is prone to make decisions on people based on skin color. i would agree strongly about the comments made by mr. sununu, even though i used to work under him at the white house. i think people base endorsements on who they think is the best person for the job. i am proud that an african-american is president of the united states. i happen to support mitt romney, and i made that decision based on the facts of what i think are the important issues that move me. i'm sorry that governor sununu made a comment like that. >> listening to what you are saying, joe, where is the outrage from your party about this statement? >> i think there are so many statements made in the closing days of the campaign, nobody is paying attention to the comments. the race is very close, and i agree with governor dean, endorsements don't mean a whole lot. except in a case like this. where the race will be razor thin, the margin of victory may be razor thin. any endorsement is certainly helpful to mitt romney in iowa. >>
. and president obama did a half an hour chat with them, but at the end of it he said, boot way that's off the record. they said, come on, mr. president, we'd like to hear what you have to say. that kind of back fired and did later release it. the big story is conventional wisdom to endorse the president, but they've instead endorsed mitt romney. >> clayton: not since 1972, 40 years, unbelievable. here is what they had to say about the decision to pick mitt romney. our discussion repeatedly circled back to the single most important challenge, getting the economy out of the doldrums and more americans and meaningful jobs with promising futures and the federal government on track to balance the budget in a bipartisan manner which the country demand. which candidate could force the compromises in congress to achieve the goals. when the question is framed in those terms, mitt romney emerges as the stronger candidate and the sentence stuck out for me, the president's best efforts to resuscitate the stumbling economy have fallen short and nothing indicates it would change in a second term. >> st
